into effect. i mean, every step of the way romney has been on the defensive. >> you and have i talked about this before. he lost the summer, he lost the conventions, he lost the month of september and he can't afford to lose the debates. the obama people were very smart, went out there right away with the bain ads. he defined romney. he had no defense. his only defense was i made free enterprise. he suddenly became the opposite of what ronald reagan was to those reagan democrats. rightly or wrongly those reagan democrats thought romney had understood them, had come from a family a lot like theirs and cared about them. it's okay to be rich. it's not okay to be the candidate of the rich, for the rich, by the rim. >> there are big moments in everybody's campaign. and romney's 47% remark may be his. and todd akin is at the center. ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing a reason to look twice. the entirely new lexus es and the first-ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. his morning starts with arthritis pain. and two pills. afternoon's overhaul starts with more pain. more pills. triple
and hasn't given us spiecifics, lets be fair. >> mitt romney is the defense lawyer in the courtroom, he's going to say the prosecution, president obama, hasn't made his case, his record isn't enough for re-election and i'll not give all the details of what i'll do, what a romney presidency would mean, make your choice based on the president, that's your plan? >> what is the plan is that the public will have plenty of detail and information to make a judgment on governor romney and what his plan is for the future. but let's look at what the president is saying as well. you're right, the president has had four years to lay this out and now a campaign. and the president just trying to run out the clock. he desperately wants to run out the clock with platitudes which sound nice and i give him that. the president is very good at that. but in the end, i think that both sides have to look at this campaign and say, what are we going to lay out over the next 36 days and that's i think what's really important. and i think governor romney will lay out some very important points over the next 36 da
to visit the actual scene of the crime due to security concerns. secretary of defense leon panetta yesterday said there was no doubt terrorists were responsible. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. and that's when i came to that conclusion as, again, as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is on going. >> the romney campaign ramped up its criticism of the president's response to those attacks claiming the administration overstated the influence of an anti-islam youtube film in order to draw folk us away from security short falls. and the man behind the anti-islam film which sparked protests throughout the muslim world is under arrest this morning in california. 55-year-old is arrested. he is accused of violating his probation. as part of a probation deal, he was barred from using computers on the internet without special permission. a term he is now suspected of breaking. a federal judge denied him bail c
to the department of defense, quote, we are committed to working together to help forge a balanced bipartisan deficit reduction package to avoid damage to our national security, important domestic priorities, and our economy. joining us now from manchester, new hampshire one of the gang's members, democratic senator j n jeanne shaheen. great to have you on the program. >> mice to be with you. i would say, alex, it's not a new gang of six, i think but it does reflect a number of different groups that have been meeting and talking in the senate about the need to address sequestration, and i was part of the six of us who signed that letter in talking about what we could do to try and reassure the public, to reassure the markets, that we understand we've got to address this problem and we've got to do it in a way that provides certainty for businesses, for consumers, so that we have a long-term solution. >> senator, i want to get your thoughts, it is, i think, laudable that this is a bipartisan gang, as other gangs have been. four of the gang members, for lack of a better term, voted for the bud
on target than the romney campaign. he needs to put obama on the defensive and needs to remake his image. i think he needs a long strategy through all the debates. i'm not sure he can do all he needs to do in one debate. >> it's so great to have both of you here. come back. thank you. >>> lockheed martin and other defense contractors agreed to a white house request not to give lay-off notices to employees days before the election in november. those companies are anticipating thousands of lay-offs because of defense budget cuts and they are required to give workers 60 days notice. it's highly unlikely any budget cuts will be decided on before the election. the administration argues that pink slips should not go out because of "uncertainty." republicans are expressing outrage saying the administration strong armed the industry to cover up job losses. creamy spinach artichoke dip, crispy garlic chicken spring rolls. they're this season's must-have accessory. lean cuisine. be culinary chic. constipated? yeah. mm. some laxatives like dulcolax can cause cramps. but phillips' caplets don't. they h
the implication is the defense between the israel defense and department of defense everything our understanding is as tight as every. there just seems to be a personality conflict between netanyahu and obama so what? >> it just happens to be a personality conflict with the man who has to make the decision whether to do the bombing or not. you overcome the personality conflict and you deal with it. you don't go hide in a shell and be afraid to talk to him. >> would you be meeting with morsi today? >> if i met with netanyahu -- >> would you be meeting with both of them? >> i'd meet with both of them. he is not doing the job of being candidate. president p.m. has decided he regards as a bump in the road he can take the time not to be president the next six weeks and let it play itself out. >> how do you know this isn't about a bump in the road? >> i don't know. all of those people being killed in syria doesn't seem like a bump in the road. >> dancing or march of 2005, it's democracy. there was a lot of chaos going on in iraq 2005. we ven said when we're there, democracy is messy. >> how long ago w
will focus on local issues hitting the president on defense cuts. it's clear the 47% issue is a drag on romney's campaign. he went out of his way at every stop yesterday to show a more compassionate side. >> i've been across this country. i think the president cares about the people of america. i care about the people in america but i know how to help the people of america. with he have people that are hurting. we have people that are disabled and people who are poor. they need our help and receive our help. we're a charitable people. >> when asked how he can understand the problems of the middle class given his personal wealth, he tauted his massachusetts health care overhaul. >> don't forget i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't think anything shows more empathy and care about the people of our state than that kind of record. >> the question was not about health care. romney went from the interview to a toledo rally where he then slammed the president's health care law. >> obama care is exhibit number one of the president'
in the campaign in a defensive posture, which is problematic. >> mark, is that the reason that the conversation was avoided? we heard so many times that governor romney would describe bain and his role there and the value of that company. we know it's private equities. we know how that game works, at least to some degree. none of us are wall street men and women in the conversation, but we know the realities of private equity. is this tape or some of the vision for bain capital the very reason we didn't hear him solidly defend that record because his vision was to harvest the profits of some of these companies they went in? >> well, i don't think we really know the reality, because we haven't had the longer discussion. we have a perception about them very shorthanded as mitt romney was doing in that tape. he was shorthanding what parlt of their business objective is. as part of that business objective, they saved weak companies. by saving weak companies, those companies didn't go out of business. they did, in fact, save lots of jobs that probably would have -- that would have been lost because
job losses were coming if congress and the president go through with the defense cuts called sequestration. >> the impact will be immediate and significant here in virginia. 136,000 jobs will be lost in virginia as a result of this move. >> and though romney wanted to focus on defense cuts, he couldn't avoid questions on the 47% comment. he was forced to defend himself in a series of local television interviews. >> is there a clarification you would offer to voters about what you meant? >> my campaign is about 100% of americans. my whole effort in running for president is to help those people that are struggling the most. this campaign and frankly my presidency if i become president is about helping people in the middle class have a better chance of making ends meet. >> of course, the president is hammering romney on the 47% remark. he is on the air with the third ad on the comment and it is brutal. it is the second time the president put out an ad narrated by romney. the first was america the beautiful ad. look at the new one. >> 47% of the people will vote for the president
of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to the sequester. i'm not sure he knows that paul ryan voted for that sequester or that at this point wars are the way you make new veterans if he's threatening new wars in iran and syria the way he's been so
before about how obama has that tendency sometimes anyway when he's on the defensive to come off as a little kocondescending. how much of debate prep is hones in on an appropriate attitude and tone to take, and how do you fix that? >> you're exactly right. there's a fine line to walk there. those are my points. i wouldn't necessarily say exactly get out of being president. the point is to at once convey the seriousness and the clarity of purpose and the sense of command that americans expect from their president while at the same time being accessible and not arrogant and being frankly okay with being questioned, being okay with being challenged. >> do you admit to mistakes? is that a good tactic in debates? >> i think you do if they're mistakes you believe you ought to admit to. you know, it's an odd hypothetical to answer. i mean, i ran the edwards campaign. edwards said the vote for the iraq war was a mistake. that was probably a good thing for him to do. does that mean carte blanche? no. >> of course not, no. >> jonathan, quickly your former speech writer for president clinto
about that? >> they did put out a spokesman in defense of ambassador -- statement in defense of ambassador susan rice yesterday. it stems from a couple of sundays ago. she was on some of the sunday shows, including "meet the press" where she gave that explanation that this protest in benghazi started off as a protest against an american installation there, about that anti-islam video that denigrated the prophet mohammed and then spontaneo spontaneously turned into something more and may have included elements of more organized elements. and that's something that republicans say that susan rice intentionally lied about, the spokesman saying last night from the white house, the administration has -- thinks that susan rice has done an extraordinary job. it was not her personal opinion that she was putting forth on those sunday shows. >> all right. mike viqueira. thank you very much for that. important story this morning. >>> to front page politics new this morning, mitt romney says he's looking forward to the upcoming presidential debates, first one's on wednesday. >> i think it
. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> flashpoint libya, the white house on the defensive after reports of both security and intelligence nurse in benghazi before that terror attack. >> standing up, sitting down. >> which ever one you like. >> there you go. >> do whatever they tell us. >> the white house line is you heard the president say, osama bin laden is dead, al qaeda is done, everything is fine in the middle east. this, obviously, contradicts -- ther series of events contradicts that campaign slogan. so, the fact is, that this was clearly an act of terror committed by people who were pretty well trained jihadists. >> more carnage in afghanistan. the taliban take responsibility for a suicide attack that killed 14 today including three americans. we are deployed in the hot spots today with lester holt live in afghanistan and ann curry on the syrian border. >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington, days away from thes first presidential debate in denver where mitt romney and barack obama will be trying to reach a shrinking pool of undecided voters. joining me for
smith, an 18-yard strike. the past decade the ravens had one of the best defenses in the league and here is why. kerry williams picked off weedon, 65 yards the other way, baltimore went on to win it. >>> the players have been locked out for 13 days in the nhl and yesterday the league canceled the preseason. the two sides meet today in new york. >>> baseball, rangers play-off bound, beat oakland to clinch the al west. a home run and three rbis. they won it 9-7. then you have the white sox in the middle of a late september collapse. evan longoria and the rays won it 3-2. the sox dropped 8 of 9. chicago's loss is detroit's game. doug fister made american league history, struck out nine straight. tigers held on to win it 5-4. >>> and finally, the mets r.a. dickie picked up the 20th win of the year. everybody is talking about travis snyder. a shot deep to ride. snyder tracked it down. scaled the fence like spiderman and made the grab. cool, calm and collected. snyder hauled it in. that is not only the catch of the day, that is the catch of the year. that's your "first look" at sports. have a
foreign policy speech days after the debate. over the weekend, the white house was on the defensive after the friday's announcement that the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in bengahzi was deliberate and organized. peter king of new york called on susan rice to resign as u.s. ambassador to the united nations after she initially claimed the attack on the consulate was part of the spontaneous protest after an anti-islamic video. yesterday paul ryan and john mccain slammed the administration's handling of the deadly attack. >> the response was slow, confused, inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture that the obama foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes on tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey that al qaeda is on the wane, everything is fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> how else could you trot out our u.n. am
through our defense secretary, other senior officials in the administration -- >> they said it's on the table. >> no one believes that because they've repeatedly spelled out how disastrous it would be, bad for america, wouldn't wipe out the iranian nuclear program, how much they are opposed to military action. they say it's on the table but no one believes it's on the table. we're not saying the military action should be used. but we are arguing that the threat of military action should be credible so it focuses the iranian leadership on reaching some diplomatic solution so if the threat of military action is credible you increase the likelihood of a diplomatic solution. you increase the likelihood that the iranians choose to freeze and stop their program, their nuclear program, race to a nuclear weapon rather than risk military action. by the president and his senior officials repeated projection broadcasting that military action is on the table but doesn't have a lot of teeth to it doesn't give the iranians incentive to get off the course they're on today. that's his point. y
issues, attacking the president on sequestration, the looming defense budget cuts effectively linking defense and national security to the economy which has been his primary message. the campaign has been flooding reporters with numbers and he mentioned them today, suggesting that sequestration cuts would effectively have an impact on 168,000 jobs, costing 168,000 jobs in the state. he said 136,000, 68,000 among small businesses specifically. and he was here with people in this critical battleground who he said have been to battle before. these are people in the military community, a lot of veterans here at american legion hall where he was speaking that he hopes will support his message of american strength through strength and not through weakness militarily. >> i have been a little puzzled by the campaign's posture on this because it was a republican and democratic agreement, the automatic triggers for these automatic cuts from sequestration if they didn't agree to a budget deal, and they didn't agree to a budget deal so this was something that the president and john boehner agreed
. and that's on offense. then you think about what he has to do on defense. he's going to be on the defense on the 47%. he's going to be on defense on his tax question. i mean, this is a guy who doesn't have very much to work with at this point. so it's hard for me to see, even if he doesn't make a major gaffe, which he does on a weekly basis, even if he doesn't, what ammunition does he have to actually have a good showing? >> i'm told there are examples of elections turning on debates, president bush for example started gaining on al gore when they faced off in 2000. is it usually the case that debates are quite the kind of game-changer that everybody thinks this one has to be for romney to do anything successfully in november? >> no, it's not. the historical data shows that i think we sort of exaggerate the role of debates. i would tip my hat to the washington monthly that has a nice article that goes through some of the political science and polling on this. it says they have a marginal impact. one notable exception was the 2000 debates between bush and gore where it appears gore pllo tw
due respect, but he also can't let that put him into a defensive posture where he doesn't -- i agree with karl rove, actually call out the president's policy. so i wouldn't phrase it as calling out the president, but calling out the president's policies. if he has a substantive debate about the president's economic policies and what has happened with them, then i think he stays in a very safe territory. >> richard, the obama campaign going pretty far to lower expectations over the past couple of weeks. a recent report on air force one, one of the traveling press secretaries asked by reporters what is the worst thing that could happen on wednesday night. her response, quote, well, he could fall off the stage. she we replied of the president. what do we expect from president obama in denver? is he going to be sharp or is he going to be rusty? >> look, i think he is going to be plenty sharp. remember, mitt romney spent all those debates, the 23 where everybody said he won 19 of them debating within a pretty narrow window ideologically. barack obama has been dealing with people all acros
the course of the next four years. >> and in terms of the defense that he has to play, the romney team are attacking him for not creating a budget, in three years, of course the argument the counter argument would be the republicans for three out of the four years were in charge and -- at least one house, and were blocking him in the senate. but they will come at him on the economy. what is the response going to be? >> well look, i think the president -- the response obviously is two fold. let's talk about where we've come from, losing 800,000 jobs a month to 30 plus months of positive private sector job growth, added 5 million jobs, you know, since we hit the bottom and -- but i think what's most important and voters want to hear is what you going to do as president going forward and i think the president will be anxious to talk about bringing manufacturing jobs back from overseas and putting americans back to work, improving our educational system, recruiting and training math and science teachers to get our children prepared for those important jobs. >> those are goals. those are go
. it is illegal for private stens to own guns for self-defense in eight states and the number is growing with increasing democratic control of state legislatures and govships. wrong. again, the second amendment is still intact and the number of new gun laws enacted by the obama administration adds up to exactly zero. finally, the prediction about how the president would respond to captured terrorists. quote, terrorists captured overseas are given full trials in the u.s. court system, and they have to be allowed access to a number of government secrets to prepare their defense. well, actually government secrets to prepare a defense, i don't think so. here is a secret for you, the top terrorist, osama bin laden, is dead. >>> no doubt if the president wins re-election those and other far right scenarios will get a new luster for the second term. because fantasy leads to more fantasy. >>> up next, the big debate last night between elizabeth warren and scott brown. well, who won that one? that was a top of the card. who lost and what does it mean for the battle sfor the senate? you're watchin
the president on the defensive about the last four years. he's got to adopt a tone, which is aggressive but at the same time respectful of the president, appropriately aggressive. you know, he's going to make sure he stays in economic issues and something he knows something about. the problem with romney's record is, he's taken almost every side of every issue in american politics. and if he has to be -- if he's made accountable for it, i think people will figure out very quickly th quickly, this guy has one for everyone in the politics. >> wes, national review reports on a plan to retool romney for debates. romney advisers have simply -- have a simple strategy. they want their candidate to balance his finely tuned arguments with personal warmth. he can retool it and can someone who's come off kind of aloof come off warm and fuzzy? >> i think gov more romnernor r trying to square away in his own head. when people can get a real gauge as to who you are and where you stand on things. and i think governor romney, this is also coming off the heels of two different things, this debate. one,
to the news. president obama is due to address the u.s. general assembly on the defensive for not scheduling face-to-face meetings with foreign leaders. it is a scheduling issue and insist t insists the president speaks often with them and yesterday he sat down for an interview on "the view." >>> secretary hillary clinton is handling the bulk of diplomacy and met with mohamed morsi about strengthening ties and ensuring diplomatic security. remember, we reported yesterday president morsi had tough words about the united states. secretary clinton met with the presidents of libya, pakistan and to hold talks with benjamin netanyahu. yesterday in new york iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad looked to stoke an already tense situation in the middle east during his remarks at the general assembly. he declared that israel is bullying the united states over iran's alleged threat of a nuclear weapon. ahmadinejad said he's not worried about the threat of an attack on his country, the impact of international countries against his country are "not that bad." says we're doing fine. >>> mitt romney schorp
a 5 trilli$5 trillion. -- another $2 trillion in defense spending. >> just three days into the first presidential debate, meanwhile mitt romney is off to the trail. we have two reports, we begin with nbc's peter alexander, he's with the romney campaign in boston, with a good morning to you, peter. what are you hearing about all the debate preps today. he o'clock najs that this is an important opportunity in her debate. people have a tendency to focus on the small things, like the color of a candidate's tie or the dramatic one liners, which is his need to get across the big picture message. he says if he does that, he thinks he can be effective over the course of the next three debates and ultimately win this thing. we heard this morning from governor chris christie of new jersey, i want to play you another clip from new jersey this morning. chris christ >> and so they're going start tuning in on wednesday night and when they do, governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america and better opportunity for all of our citizens, and i think that's when you're
faced off under the monday night lights except the cowboys' offense was no match for chicago's defense. dallas quarterback tony romo threw five interceptions. two were returned for touchdowns. first in the second quarter on a pass intended for dez bryant, look at him go. that's picked by charles tillman and returned for six. and again in the third, just after dallas forced a chicago fumble. romo gives the ball right back to lance briggs who returns it 74 yards for the touchdown. bears won it 34-18. >>> on to baseball. the yankees crushed the red sox 10-2 last night. four yankee homers including a two-run bomb by returning first baseman mark teixeira. it capped off a nine-run second inning. and with an orioles' loss to the rays, the yanks took a one-game lead in the a.l. east. a lot of happy people here today. >>> in kansas city, detroit's miguel cabrera had four hits including a homer during a five-run sixth inning to help the tigers beat the royals 6-3 and claim the a.l. central title. >>> and finally, it's always time for champagne. despite losing to the phillies last night, the nati

. >>> finally over the weekend republicans kept the white house on the defensive. after the friday announcement from the director of national intelligence, talk about a 5:00 news dump, that the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi was, in fact, deliberate and organized. on friday peter king called on ambassador susan rice to resign saying, quote, the fact is she gave out information which was either intentionally or unintentionally misleading and wrong and there should be consequences for that. called her, quote, an enormously capable person. in an unusual statement on friday, the office of the director of national intelligence explained the changing description of the events of the attack, quote, in the immediate aftermath, there was information that led us to aseventy that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in cairo. as we learned more about the attack, we revised our initial assessment to reflect new information indicating that it was a deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried out by extremists. the administrations appeared
carolina. we're not going to save our defense unless we go along with the president's wishes to raise taxes on small business. it's not a good choice. i would never support it, but there are enough republicans i think who are so afraid of defense cuts that they would probably give in. let me go to ari. thanks for joining us, ari. my sense is as well as andrew has laid this out, how obama is this visionary and can think three or four years ahead, he must have also counted on an economic recovery kicking in with a lot more steam than we've had which jeopardizes getting to that second term. we have an 8%-plus unemployment rate that looks like it's going to be facing us in the face the day people vote. >> i think that's right. they had hoped the economy would rebound more. they inherited a 750 million per month loss rate and have improved a lot from that as andrew documents in the piece, but they have a longer ways to go. i think the other interesting comparison to ronald reagan is there's two ronald reagans. there was the ronald reagan who worked with democrats, who made tax reform a priority
on the campaign and frafrmgly the obama campaign has been on the defensive about it which is why when obama is in ohio today he's going to make the amount about ohio. he filed trade complaints with the world trade organization. he'll also argue that romney profited from companies while he was at bain capital. he's saying it's a margin of error race. in other words, that'd code for romney's behind and that's why they're making comments like this one. >> the question was if we lose ohio, could we still win. say if and buts were candy and nuts, every day would be christmas. >> make no mistakes. ohio, big problem for romney. >>> speaking of the two candidates, while they're both in ohio today, yesterday obama and romney rivalled the muppets and tried to take manhattan. they jammed as much as they could during competing visits to the big apple, a whirlwind day of media appearances. it was hard to miss them either physically in new york or on the tv. >> i'm just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys. >> the two traded few actual barbs. instead they did more subtle contrasts on the serious is
and words probably designed to help romney. on the other hand, you have barack the defense minister trying to help obama with the public words and statements. >> i think brack -- >> how will that dynamic be affected by the november election result here? >> i don't think it will be very -- i mean, it might affect the jewish population vote more or less but i don't think ehud barack, the defense minister endorsed -- >> when you have netanyahu going out of the way to talk about -- present the image of strained relations and then choosing to go public and say israel's never had a better friend in the white house than barack obama. that seems -- >> when you are prime minister, you have the upper hand. you're the voice of the country. you are the most important man. you know, when jimmy carter used to say, israel has no morn policy and only domestic policy. this time in history we see somebody interfering and clearly endorsing one of the sides and it's never happened in the history. and it's doing it in a very delicate moment for the u.s. relation in the middle east, doing it in a -- plus even h

in defense cuts that his running mate paul ryan voted for, he implied that would hurt suicide prevention programs for veterans even though the v.a. would be exempt from that, so i'm not sure he even understood what it was he was talking about. but at least he tried. at least veterans got a mention from him. even if it didn't make sense in policy terms. you do know that defense and veterans are two different -- at some point it should be possible with 40 days left to say veterans have to be more than just an applause line. right? you don't just get to use them for a photo op like the decommissioned battleship you used as a backdrop when you introduced paul ryan inexplicably in front of a battleship, another time when you didn't mention the war. even if you're not willing to talk about the war we are in that you would be taking over, veterans are not a hypothetical construct. the way they're treated is not an esoteric consequence of how we feel about them as a nation or how much military spending we have which is how mitt romney described it today. 40 days out from the election with the is
it in those swing states. and that's because mitt romney played defense a lot of the first half of this year. whether it was in the primaries or in may, when the primary was finally over, and the obama campaign really started to hit him hard on his bain record. there hasn't an opening or an effective way for him to articulate a vision to turning the economy around. and it shows in the poll numbers. >> lynn, if governor romney can't hang this economy over the president's neck in the next three or four weeks, is there a chance he can beat him? >> of course there is one big blooper from obama, and the mistake may certainly change the trajectory of the campaign. but garrett made a very good point. i want to quickly build on another reason why obama might have dealt with housing today. he's doing his debate prep in a suburb of las vegas. where is he now that it's hard hit? so, again, this is another reason -- a reason he's camped out there, deliberately, so to try to bolster his support in nevada. and again, i think he's just prophylactically building a community around himself, dealing with hous

policy questions and in fairness he gets a chance to put president obama on the defensive the but to sflan to the american people specifically what he wants. here's the unfortunate truth about this, chris. both presidential candidates, president obama and governor romney are smart individuals. this is going to be a very good debate, because both are policy wonks and they're not afraid to answer a detailed question. >> nera, this morning chuck todd said to be honest -- they're both smart men, but neither is a great debater. he thinks the vice presidential debate will be a lot more interesting. however, mitt romney has 20 primary debates under his belt and president obama has none this time around. if you look at history, the past four incumbent presidents have had a difficult time in the first debate. give me your take on this. >> the president has had numerous press conferences. obviously piece asked questions about policy and he has to answer them. he has to practice having sharper answers, because you have a limited amount of time. i do think, though, that governor romne

in and not look scared or defensive. he has to be cool and calm and confident and own the space. that is the most important thing for him. if he looks skiddish. those optics will be the most devastating thing for him. you would think would be about the pressure would be on the incumbent to defend the last four years in office. but in this debate, it is clear that 100% is on how does mitt romney handle the 47% question? >> i agree with crystal to put in other terms the undecided voters are sitting with their back toward the stage. the voice and he has to be strong and have an answer. the problem he has is which every way he turns he loses a piece of the argument. ro romney is going to lose a piece where he turns. one that he has used before, is to say look, i care about the 100%. look at what i did in massachusetts with romney care. if he give that is answer, he loses the strength of the argument. but i think he has no choice. i think he has to say that like the president, when the president in 2008 was overheard at a fundraiser talking about people clinging to funs and religion that people shorth

that they believe they can put the obama campaign back on the defensive. i agree with joe. it's surprising that they are putting this forward and it has to be because in doing so they are now forcing the media to ask those questions. you know, to fact check president obama, to write these stories about how romney's going to call him a liar, which then sort of deluge into something that takes over. right now romney doesn't have any card to play. the last thing they can do is make americans believe that when barack obama talks about the successes of the last four years, that he is simply lying. >> well, don't say that he has any more cards because there may be more tapes on obama at the rate he's going. joe madison, alicia menendez, thank you for your time tonight. >> thanks, rev. >>> ahead, he's been in hiding from the romney campaign but when they told george w. bush to go away, they probably didn't mean go toll the cayman islands for an investment conference. >>> and hundreds and thousands voting today in iowa. it's a big day for this election. stay with us. >> this is the movement of our
